Well, there are extremists all over the world who educate young children today to the exact opposite. They educate to hate and to dominate. They educate that their are people thousands of miles away from them that they need to eradicate. Jews, non-Muslims and so many others are the enemy. The ideology is not new. However, today, it is not professors in obscure locations around the world or preachers with a small group of followers that are leading the charge.

Clarion Project explains that, “At best, these children internalize toxic values and become full of hate. At worst, they become terrorists themselves. Turning kids into terrorists is a horrifying violation of their human rights as defined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
“THE CHILD SHALL BE PROTECTED AGAINST ALL FORMS OF NEGLECT, CRUELTY AND EXPLOITATION.”
Principle 9, UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child
